Growing up in a small country town and having a passion for anything sports, Sandra was exposed to the catastrophic outcomes of a foot injury, not only to her ability to compete at an elite level, but how it affected her ability to simply “get around”.
After visiting a podiatrist in a nearby town, so impressed by what the podiatrist was able to achieve, she became fascinated with how therapy concepts could have such a profound and immediate impact on someone’s ability to walk out with less/no pain or increased function.
After finishing year 12, she began working part time as a footwear specialist whilst completing a 4 year bachelor degree studying Sport and Exercise Science. Upon completion and after taking a short break teaching English overseas, she returned to study and become a Podiatrist where In 2009 she graduated from QUT School of Podiatry with a Bachelor of Health Science (Podiatry) and began her career as at an extremely busy orthopaedic practice specialising in orthopaedic bracing/splinting and custom orthotics.
Sandra has a true passion for not only podiatry but for patient care, but outside of work still enjoys playing competitive netball, running, golf and going to the gym.
